    I got a flu shot. And I take daily Vitamin D too (doctor's recommendation, plus the studies showing it may be helpful against cancer which I've had twice).

      sounds like a good recommendation. But the jury is still out on just how well Vit D works with preventing flu.

      Thought experiment: if vit D prevents 20% of cases and flu vax prevents 60% of cases is vit D "better"? Does the discussion then move to side effects? or needle phobia?

      Worth asking.
